Dundee United FC launched a new expanded community partnership with Dundee United Community Trust (DUCT), formerly United for All, at a gala event at Tannadice Park on 24 April 2017.
DUCT, set up in its previos guise in 2007, in partnership with the Club, will now oversee the community department and the reach of Dundee United FC into the local community with the aim of strengthening and expanding its influence.
DUCT, which has Lorraine Kelly, Brian Taylor and Ricky Ross as Honorary Patrons, focuses on four pillars of activity: Sport, Health, Education and Inclusion.
Within these four components, the current projects accounted for over 500,000 engagements within the community, and this number was expected to grow under the new partnership. The present list of programmes will expand to incorporate new and improved projects across the community, directly impacting the lives of people of all ages within the redefined local community which includes Angus and Perthshire.
DUCT have a website: http://dundeeunitedct.co.uk which details its work within the community.
Both Dundee United and ArabTRUST have a long standing association with the Show Racism the Red Card campaign.
ArabTRUST have been heavily involved in developing a strong relationship with Show Racism the Red Card and have regularly helped organise and deliver events and seminars at the Club since 2005.
Since the inaugural event in September 2007, ArabTRUST and Dundee United have been fully supportive of the anti-sectarianism campaign and Tannadice hosted Scotland's inaugural 'Kick-Out Bigotry' event on 27 September 2007 organized jointly by Dundee's two professional football clubs, with added support from the two respective supporters' trusts - Dee4Life and ArabTRUST.
Since then, ArabTRUST and Dundee United FC have maintained their position as one of the most proactive clubs in Scotland with regard to promoting equality through the use of football.
